“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

The hotel has a stunning view across the coast and is conviniently located at the top of the railway for easy access down the cliff face to Lynmouth and the coast. We took our two dogs, they loved exploring the area, and everyone was very dog friendly. There are some sweet seaside pubs in Lynmouth and we found four dog friendly pubs for evening meals. There were two more in Lynton too.

The hotel iself very clean and spacious. The room itself could have done with a lick of paint and it was rather on the small side, but with such a lovely view it wasn't a big deal, and it was very clean which is the main thing.

The full english breakfast the next day was served in a lovely sunny room and tasted absolutely delicious. The staff were all friendly and welcoming, and readily gave advice on the area.

As above, the building and rooms do appear dated in parts, but I would recommend this hotel for the view, cleanliness, doggie friendlness and yummy breakfast.

The Hotel is situated overlooking Lynmouth and the view is amazing.

There is hardly any parking, its okay if you are the first guests to arrive, but then you can't get your car out in the morning!!

The reception was unmanned and every time you needed something you had to ring a bell!

The interior of the hotel is very jaded and needs a thorough overhaul.

Our room was clean but I haven't stayed in a room this tired for a long time!!! Wood chip paper, that was peeling off the walls in places, an ensuite that if you were bigger than a size 16 you would have struggled to get into!! Every time a guest flushed their toilet our room shook and sounded like somebody was drilling through the walls!!!! You can put up with it occasionally but in the middle of the night it's not so funny! It got so bad my husband recorded it

Having said all that the breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked and served very efficiently.

I would never stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, it's the best thing about the hotel.

This hotel appealed to us as we could take our dog and you would have no idea it was a dog hotel, it was immaculately clean and a great set up for dog owners and walkers alike with an entrance room all equipped for cleaning and drying off.
The rooms were a little old fashioned but it is being modernised and they have everything you could need.
Kate was lovely and made the place feel very homely and she cooks a mean breakfast :)

Room Tip: Ensure your room is far away from the railway if you want to sleep in. It’s not loud however it'...

This hotel booking was last minute and am so glad we picked to stay here, and the bonus is they allow dogs. The room was clean, no signs of it being a dog friendly hotel in that there was no smell or hair etc, it is not the most modern of rooms, but a nice clean bed and plenty of space makes up for that. The view was FABULOUS, location FABULOUS, freindly family feel. The breakfast was lovely and a lovely little bar to grab a drink and sit next to the famous cliff railway.

We only planned to stay one night. We stopped off at Porlock, Dunster, Minehead and Watchet thinking we may stay at one of these places the next day, but within 4 hours of leaving..... luckily our room was still available and we rushed back.

Will stay here again for sure and thank you so much for making an impromptu trip to Devon one of the best I have had for a long time.

Room Tip: You need to get a room with a view over to the east of the coast, you could sit and watch that view...

POSITIVES:
Lovely friendly feel
- Friendly, helpful staff
- Keeps you fit if you walk the hill to Lynton every day (take a torch if walking at night as limited lighting)
- On the path of some lovely walks
-Beautiful views from the bedroom
-Lovely breakfast everyday
-Nice to have the option of a lounge and bar and restaurant in the hotel (although we didn't use it)
SUGGESTIONS
- Would be nice to have some info about the restaurant in the hotel in the room so we knew when breakfast was, and what nights there was the dinner option etc (but this is a very small and really not negative comment!)

Room Tip: Try to get a sea view - the views are amazing :)

This guesthouse is immaculately maintained and is run with clear systems to ensure efficient and consistent service. Our hosts were very accommodating and we found their local recommendations very reliable. I believed that the decor was designed to be traditional and there were many quality touches in our room. This is good place for a quiet stay with excellent views.

We spent one night at this hotel on the way own to Cornwall and enjoyed our stay. The welcome was warm and the room was good (Room 10) with great views. The hotel is central so we had easy access to bars, restaurants and the cliff railway (which we could see from our window). Breakfast was good. Only one small issue - tha car park is quite small. However, I would recommend it.
